reducing barack obama's exposure domestically from republicans who have been hammering him because they believe he somehow doesn't care enough about israel. it's about maximizing the chances of taking the house back in 2014. he doesn't need the old business of this nagging notion that he's somehow the most adversarial president toward the state of israel in the history of the relationship and to steve's point, let's be clear, the reason israelis end up expecting american presidents to quote/unquote love them is because barack obama's two immediate predecessors did precisely that! bill clinton was in love with the idea of israel. he wrote in his memoirs about rabin "i loved rabin as i've love nod other man." and george w. bush, with all the frustrations with ariel sharon was enamored with him as well. so obama inherited a high bar and, frankly, didn't make his own situation any better. he is not an emoter in chief. he has a tough time connecting so that's point number one, number two, this is a down payment trip. this is not a trip to reassure netanyahu on the palestinian issue or o

relief. let's do things that actually put pressure on the spending that president obama wants but puts that money in the hands of those middle earners who are burdened by the social security payroll tax. this is an idea that is gaining a lot of currency among republicans but very difficult for patty murray and the obama administration to follow up on. >> well, but it fits in with what the president wants which is to give more tax relief to the middle class. i simply have to say as i always do, that though is something that flies in the face of what a lot of economists and former president clinton say have to happen over the long term which is taxes need to go up on the middle class. >> the president has been questioned about fairness and saying if you look at sort of the way that dow is going, you look at sort of the incredible profits on corporations. they're not paying their fair share. but to go back to the issue at hand, i really think the speaker -- >> how do you define fair, cornell? if you tax 100%, you don't get rid of the debt problem. so what is fair? >> i think it is a visce

real frustration trying to covers the budget debates. republicans cover five issues, they want to cut the budget deficits and cut defense spending and simplify the tax code and lower tax rates. in a deal with president obama they could get the first four, more deficit reduction, protect defense, the democratic president would get some cover in cutting medicare and social security and they could simplify the tax code by taking out expenditures. they are now saying they want none of those things and also not going to get the tax rates and keep the sequester and not have a deal. i've asked a lot of them to walk me through the reasoning here and honestly never come to an answer i understand a little bit. >> does that mean they're post policy. even some things that seem like constants don't actually a matter them, it's pure politics, just positioning themselves vis-a-vis the president and not interested in a particular outcome for the country? >> i would like to have an answer where that isn't true. i really would. i've been trying to find it. i'm sure part is i'm not smart enough to do so
